That is true. It's no guacamole but its close.

No they are strips of bacon (6 i think) served in a glass with a little cup of peanut butter on the side for dipping. Simple yet elegant.

It sure looks tasty to me! As a kid, I enjoyed peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwiches.

Sliced Banana's
jam - YUMMY!

Oh, and lettuce

So I asked my son if he'd ever had bacon with peanut butter. (Seemed reasonable. It's the kind of thing a teenager might invent.)

His immediate reaction was pretty funny: "What is that, some weird old Grateful Dead thing? 'We have bacon. We have peanut butter. Why do the sensible thing and make TWO sandwiches when we can put them TOGETHER?'" He thinks a minute. "Actually, it might be pretty good."

(My husband's reaction: "Americans will buy anything.")

There is actually a Deadhead Cookbook, although I'm pretty sure this wouldn't be in it. Even though I remember reading a Jerry interview where he was eating bacon sandwiches.


Maybe it's in the Phish cookbook?

Yes, i realized by the responses that a Kind Veggie Burrito dipped in peanut butter might be an easier sell on this forum. I still think bacon would taste better.

As for your family responses, your son is wise beyond his years. Your husband is also correct, but he is looking at it the wrong way. Instead of focusing on what Americans will buy, he should focus on the positive. This is a wonderful example of American ingenuity. What other country could come up with Bacon in a Glass with a side of peanut butter!! Three cheers for the red, white and blue!! Well either that or people were stoned, had the munchies and the conversation that your son imagined followed.
